Howdy! Metal Factions has been recently improved with the release of Metal Factions 1.98. For those unfamiliar with it, Metal Factions is an open-source game made with the Spring RTS game engine. It\'s an evolving real-time strategy game with four factions: Aven, Gear, Claw, and Sphere. It features 3D terrain and units, intuitive physics with real-time simulated gravity, collision handling, and projectile trajectories. It has over 400 units, including humanoid robots, tanks, ships, aircraft, buildings, defenses, etc. Here are the updates from Metal Factions 1.98:
